Canon EOS 7D Version 2??

Recommended Posts

Rudix

A seller is advertising a Canon EOS 7D Version 2, see:

 

Digital SLR - CANON EOS 7D VERSION 2 - BODY ONLY, NO LENS INCLUDED for sale in Cape Town (ID:93552004)

 

I think this is misleading, the camera is a Canon EOS 7D with version 2,xx firmware. This is not a version 2 camera!!! There will be a Canon EOS 7D Version 2/Mark 2 soon but it has not been announced yet. A search on the internet will prove that quickly.......

 

When I asked the seller about this he got all aggressive and called me an idiot and accused me of trying to be a smart @ss......

 

I think the ad should be changed or removed?

 

What do you think?

 

Regards,

Rudi

To make it all so much simpler and to make you happy I will change the listing tomorrow and just post a picture of the Canon 7D box where it clearly states that it is a Version 2 ..... that you can take it up with Canon. You're confusing aggression with irritation at nitpickers.

That would be much better thanks!

 

If you knew anything about cameras you would know that version 2 of the software (actually it is the firmware if you knew what you were talking about) does not constitute version 2 of the camera!

 

You say you are not aggressive, well, then you should not attack me personally or call me names......

 

The problem is that the net is abuzz with rumors of a version 2/mark 2 of this camera, a REAL upgrade and your ad is confusing to people who might not know better into thinking they are buying something that it is not!

 

I assume this is a gray import? Will have a chat to Canon SA today.

Ok, just had a reply from Canon Japan (I am a platinum CPS member).

 

The official description that can be used is:

 

Canon EOS 7D Firmware version 2

 

A small but important point..........

Yes, but as stated in the link it is a FIRMWARE upgrade and not a body version 2 or mark 2 as implied by the advertisement! This has been confirmed by Canon in Japan!

 

The word Firmware cannot be removed from the description else it is no longer correct.
